How Do Doctors See Inside You With an MRI?

What Is an MRI?

MRI stands for Magnetic Resonance Imaging. It's a big machine that doctors use to look inside your body!

Why Use MRI?

Doctors use MRI to get a super clear picture of what's inside you, like your bones, muscles, and even your brain!

No X-ray Vision Needed!

Unlike superheroes, doctors can't see inside our bodies with their eyes. So, they use MRI as their super way.

The Magic of Magnets

MRI uses powerful magnets and radio waves to create images. It’s like a magic camera that can see through you!

Before the scan, you need to remove all metal objects because the magnet in the machine is very strong.

Preparing for an MRI

You'll lie down on a sliding table that moves into the MRI machine. It's like sliding into a tunnel!

What Happens During an MRI?

Listening to the Tunes

The MRI machine makes loud tapping noises, so you might wear headphones to listen to music during the scan.

Stay Still!

It’s important to stay very still while the pictures are being taken to make sure they come out clear.

The doctor will look at the MRI pictures to see if everything is okay inside your body or if you need any treatment.
